Illinois abortion center put patients in ‘immediate jeopardy’
During a recent inspection of the Access “Health Center” abortion facility in the Chicago suburb of Downers Grove, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) found conditions so dangerous to women that all abortions were cancelled and not allowed to resume until every surgical instrument in the entire facility was re-sterilized and staff were trained on proper sterilization procedures.
The instruments—which enter the uterus to perform an abortion—contained no chemical indicators to indicate that sterilization had taken place. No weekly biological testing was being performed on the autoclave (sterilizer) itself, and no log was being kept of the sterilization of instruments. There was no way to know whether the instruments were carrying infection from previous patients.
